PM declines to talk about departure of one small party from the governing coalition

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha this morning (Wednesday) covered one of his ears with his hand as he pretended not to hear a reporter’s question about the announcement yesterday that the Prachatham Thai party is to pull out of the government’s coalition.

 

Mr. Pichet Sathirachavan, leader of the small party, told the media yesterday that they had decided to break away from the coalition to join the independent opposition camp with the New Civilized party. He said his party is upset over a remark, allegedly made by Deputy Agriculture Minister Thammanat Prompao, the government’s fixer, describing the ten smallest parties in the government as “monkeys which need to be fed with bananas every now and then”.

 

The Prime Minister claimed he couldn’t hear the reporter’s question as he covered his ear. However, Energy Minister Sontirat Sontijirawong, in his capacity as secretary-general of the Palang Pracharat party, told the media that the party was trying to meet with Mr. Pichet to discuss the problem caused the offensive remark.

A coalition has never been a good solution, between parties with totally different ideas is a big mistake!

Is he becoming more creative with the buillsh!t excuses? Usually it's 'national security' as a reason not to answer a question. That, or to threaten women with a 'punch in the mouth'.

Let there be more parties to leave and the fun begin.

But when you have a convicted drug smuggler as the man keeping them in line it might not be so easy!

And maybe the quote below was taken from his mantra back in those days:

This is only the first one to leave. From a molehill does a mountain grow.

Prayut may come to regret his "fixer" druggie jailbird Minister disrespectfully slagging off at the small parties he depends on for support.

But if the worst comes to worst he can just offer the small parties spaces closer to the deepest part of the trough.
